About this course
Our Advanced Forensic Analysis course is designed to give you an advanced understanding of the main areas of forensic science and is unlike any other postgraduate course in forensic science, in that it covers in more depth all of the areas touched on in UWE Bristol's undergraduate courses. There are modules in all three key areas of forensic science: biology, chemistry and crime scene science and we also offer a module covering more advanced aspects of research and statistics. You can base your in-depth research project aspect of the programme at UWE Bristol's Forensic Analysis department, or on placement with one of our partner forensic providers. These include West Technology or Mass Spec Analytical, and local fire services that rely on the analytical skills you'll develop.
- Students who have graduated with a minimum of a lower second class honours degree from a course accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Science (CSFS) in the three relevant component standards (Interpretation, Evaluation and Presentation of Evidence, Crime Scene Investigation and Laboratory Analysis) may apply for direct entry to the course.
- The course has been specifically designed for graduates from Forensic Science courses accredited by the CSFS (in CSI, Lab analysis and IEFE) and such graduates (with a minimum of a 2:2 classification) can be accepted directly onto the course.
